Billionaire investor Ken Langone and Larry Bossidy, former Honeywell CEO, speak about the RADical Hope Foundation, their effort to reach young people struggling with mental health. The two united after Bossidy’s grandson Chris Martin, a Gonzaga University student, died by suicide aged 20. Bossidy first discussed the tragedy in a moving 2018 Squawk Box appearance, that caught guest William Shatner by surprise. RADical Hope’s new program -- RADical Health, being pioneered at NYU -- encourages students, parents and college communities to talk openly about mental health and teaches freshmen the skills to “stay well and resilient.” Plus, only on Squawk Pod, Joe Kernen reflects on what talking about mental health means for a proud college dad.
